home state of texas. he is going to turn down the affordable care act money that his citizens would get to enjoy if he actually accepted it. it will cost his own citizens billions of dollars, but rick perry says this. >> we have some of the finest health care in the world, i mean some incredible healthcare facilities in this country, so the idea that this federal government -- which doesn't like texas to begin with to pick and choose and come up with data to say that texas has the worst health care system in the world is just false on its face. >> it is not the worst in the world. it is the worst in the united states. here let me show you the states here. this would be the amount of states -- oh look at this the number of people insured, the percentages are pretty good up top. but, oh here is number 50 texas. now if you are a donor to rick perry, you don't care because you are rich. you don't care about the 26% of the population that doesn't have insurance. but over a quarter of the population not in great shape would be helped tremendously. that's 6.6 million
much better after that. while governor romney was enjoying a cheer down in texas, house speaker john boehner was bringing his former swagger to the house floor. aiming to bring down the affordable care act with yet another pointless house vote and igniting the usual fireworks. >> this law continues to mack our economy worse and there is even more resolve to see it is fully repeal. >> welcome to groundhog day. >> they are voting for wealth care for the most profitable industries in the history of the united states of america. >> what a valentine to the health insurance industry. >> obamacare also has disastrous implications for the moral fabric of our nation. >> welcome to groundhog day. >> and here's the good news. the voters get the last word in november. stay tuned. >> we will stay tuned, indeed. joining us now here in new york is msnbc contributor jonathan capehea capeheart. clarence page of "the chicago tribune." jonathan writes for "the washington post." good day to both of you. have to ask you both this question. i want to start with you, john, was mitt romney really addressing

. >> yield to the gentlemen from minnesota. >> i thank the gentleman from texas and associate myself with both colleagues, making sure we don't have fraud, waste and abuse in the system. on monday when i was coming out as a spot check, one of these convenience stores in my district, a gallon was $2.29 a bananas under 38 cents. that's significantly under the price and these things evolved into being more than a place for alcohol and tobacco. and this particular convenience store runs its own dairy. this is a small like we're hearing there. i agree with the gentleman and hope we can work on that and move forward. >> yield to the ranking member. >> i don't have any problem but what i'm concerned about, i think what part -- i don't know for sure, but i assume what's driving this is the fraud we've had in the food stamp system has been the biggest problem we've had is with the store, not with the actual food stamp recipients, the stores we're having trouble with the ones who don't have an electronic system where they are just doing, you know, just write down or got an old cash register th
. it makes sense. but then, you have a guy like republican texas governor rick perry come along and say something like this: >> texas wasn't going to be a part of it expanding socializing of our medicine. so we are not going to participate in exchanges. we are not going to expand medicaid. we are just for the going to be a part of, again socializing health care in the state of texas. >> so in addition to losing out on billions in money to cover their uninsured, texas is going to lose $17,000,000,000 in special federal funds that would support hospitals who care for the uninsured. and their hospitals are going to get slammed. nearly 1 in 4 texans are uninsured, the most in the nation. now, 6 republican governors have decided not to take the health care money, not to opt in including texas and florida, two of the biggest states in the nation. in total, nearly 4 million people from those 6 states will lose health care coverage by their failure to opt in. joying me to discuss the predictament for hospitals in particular is bruce siegel, the ceo of the nati
. and with that -- >> will the gentleman yield? >> i happily yield to the gentleman from texas. >> one other point, mr. chairman. i too would love to have deeper cuts, and in a lot of programs, including this one. but i also recognize that this may very well be our only option -- only realistic chance of getting a bill to the president's desk that has a meaningful reduction in the rate of growth and food stamps. and so while i voted on a stand-alone basis for the reconciliation bill a couple months ago, all of us recognized a chance of actually becoming law, this will become law. if we somehow break the coalition that's put together to get this out of committee tonight, then we will have squandered our one real good chance of getting beyond the $4 billion that's in the senate bill. so i would also encourage my colleagues to consider not supporting this amendment. >> wise words from the gentleman from texas. he yields his time back to me. i yield my time back. the question now on the amendment from the gentleman from kansas, the amendment number 40, is for passage. all those in favor of pass ing amendment number 40, si
